Blast From The Bayou

By  | 

OMAHA, NE -- Blake Dean hit a three-run double off the left-field wall in the bottom of the ninth inning to keep LSU alive in the College World Series with a 6-5 victory over Rice on Tuesday.

Dean drove Cole St. Clair's 1-0 pitch on a line to the fence,
and he was mobbed by teammates shortly after he arrived at second
base. The celebration was the culmination of LSU's rally from a a
5-0 deficit.

The Tigers had scored a run in the seventh and eighth innings to
pull to 5-2 against St. Clair. In the ninth, Michael Hollander hit
an RBI single before Jared Mitchell reached on an error to load the
bases.

Dean then delivered the biggest hit.

LSU (49-18-1) plays Thursday against the loser of Tuesday
night's Bracket 2 game between Fresno State and North Carolina.

Rice ends the season 47-15.
